My family and I are safe and we’ve temporarily relocated to a safe place for now. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers. The situation in Tacloban is very critical. Food, water and shelter are still inadequate, but relief is ongoing. The peace and order has deteriorated with rampant looting and lawlessness prevailing in the area. A possible epidemic outbreak may follow with the lack of action being taken regarding the dead bodies littered all over the city. It will take a long time to restore things back to normal.
If you wish to send donations and help, please ask your local Rotary Clubs if they have intentions of coordinating with Rotary Clubs in Tacloban. I am a past president of the Rotary Club of Tacloban, and in the meantime will be the focal person in terms of communicating and coordinating with other Rotary clubs who wish to help. I can be reached through email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
